This is the baronial North Wing self catering castle suite within Leny House. Just completed after 3 years of renovation, the late medieval section of Leny House now provides a luxurious apartment for your enjoyment.
The splendid main hall has the stonework exposed and brought to life, oak galleries and beams reproduced and the ornate, decorated panelling and cornices replicated and extended. The entrance contains original oak timbers and reclaimed oak was used to restore the balustrades and galleries.
The open fireplace in the medieval hall encloses an iron firebasket and decorated canopy that recalls the style of the period. Picture yourself sitting before a log fire with a dram of single malt whisky, candlelight illuminating the stone walls and oak panelling.
The upper mezzanine area offers a beautiful place to relax and read a book in one of the window alcoves or indeed gaze over at the grandeur of the main hall with it’s huge arched stone fireplace.
The kitchen is spacious and fully equipped with modern appliances installed in oak cabinets to preserve the character.
This lovingly restored and beautifully decorated bedroom houses a massive, 5ft wide, draped 4 poster bed and is furnished with lavish antiquities and decorative features. It has a large walk in wardrobe and a large ensuite bathroom with seperate shower, bath, hand basin and WC.
This beauftifully decorated room has been restored to a high standard and finished with huge 4 poster bed with heraldic drapes. This bedroom is furnished with fine victorian antiques and offers comfortable luxury for the discerning resident.
We stayed in the Buchanan Lodge, and it was just what we needed. After many days of full Scottish B&B breakfasts and pub dinners, we were eager to prepare our own food in a well equipped kitchen. The cabin was spacious and very comfortable. The interior was kept up and clean. Wifi was hit or miss, but the point was to be on vacation, so it wasn’t a big deal. Driving up the drive past the sheep and the main house added to the charm of the experience. The town of Callendar is just up the road.
